Fun Had By All!

It has been a busy few days, but tons of fun!! Saturday was GORGEOUS! Mr. Mayer* and I had tickets to go see Kenny Chesney at the BOK Center Saturday night with a friend. I.was.so.excited. We started our night off at Leon's for pizza and some drinks. 

The picture doesn't convey how much LARGER their beers were from mine!

Cheers!

Mr. Mayer LOVES Guinness, even more when it's on tap.

We had a great time at the concert. I should have checked myself a little better before I left the house. Or, at least not worn a bright blue bra under a thin shirt. *Sigh*
 Lesson learned for next time....

While we had a wonderful time hanging out with friends and acting like grown ups the highlight of my night was when I came home and saw what Diva had left for me on my pillow...such a sweet girl!

Sunday was a pretty lazy day around our house. After church we didn't really do much of anything. We were resting up for MONDAY aka LADY GAGA DAY!!! Mr. Mayer and I have had our tickets for months. I was so excited I could hardly contain myself. I really like Lady G, but I was even more excited to people watch.  I.was.not.disappointed.
We kicked off our night at Casa Laredo to have dinner with friends. YUMMO! Then we made our way to the BOK Center to commence the festivities. So.much.fun!!!!! I took just a few pictures....
The cast of characters





It's always exciting when we get together with these two...they are two of our oldest and dearest friends...

He doesn't share my interest in people watching

After the opening act we chatted with people next to us and patiently waited for HER to arrive. 


She did a great performance...

Mr. Mayer and I were up wwwwaaaaaayyyyyyy past our bedtime...we were happy to be home and crawl into bed. My eyes had been closed for 1 minute when Diva started hollering from upstairs that she threw up. No joke. She's having some allergy problems. She's been coughing. She's snotty. It all came to a head with her coughing and throwing up at 1:00am. Awesome. Mr. Mayer and I get her situated, changed, medicated and start dragging our weary butts back to bed. I close my eyes and Shrek starts crying. Ugh...again, out of bed. I get him situated. Back in bed. 2am. I successfully go to sleep until 4am. The batteries in the smoke detector go kaput and starts chirping. I strategically place a pillow over my head hoping that will drown out the irritating noise. Mr. Mayer can't take anymore and gets up and takes the batteries out. Silence. Next thing I know the alarm goes off. Dang! 7am. I.am.tired. 
However, babies need to bed fed and Diva's need to be checked on. Miraculously she's fine this morning and gets to take a picture with a Bunny at school. Very.Big.Deal. We had to pay $5 for her to do this. Mr. Mayer said it was to "take care of" the bunny after it has to hang out at daycare all day. Poor bunny!
So, out of bed I crawl to start the day. Also a very big day because I have to go enroll Diva into Pre-K. The process was easier than I expected and she got into the school we wanted. Hooray!!! Needless to say I came home and the rest of my day has been pretty unproductive. I have a couple of days to recoup and rest up before Mr. Mayer and I go see Kings of Leon on Friday night. We have a serious concert problem. 


*You may notice I have transitioned from calling Mr. Hubs to Mr. Mayer. I realized in my day to day conversations with people I refer to him as Mr. Mayer. I thought I would just convey that in my blog as well.

Nana Karen's Red Sauce and Meatballs~ Oh My!

When I am in the mood for comfort food my mind immediately goes to Spaghetti and Meatballs. It has been my favorite for as long as I can remember. My version of the dish consists of jarred sauce and ground beef or frozen meatballs because I didn't know how to make meatballs. Enter Nana Karen. When I was pregnant with Shrek and Donkey there wasn't much I could do the further along I got. Nana Karen would come over about once a week and make dinner and help me with whatever. She was a God send. It was an enormous help. One of the things she would make was Spaghetti and Meatballs. Wow! She made homemade sauce and from scratch meatballs. Every time I eat this dish I am in heaven. Nana Karen is an old school cook. She doesn't measure anything and makes everything from memory. A few weeks ago she found a pasta maker that her and I have been playing with and making homemade pasta. If you have never had homemade pasta it is divine!  She came over today to make some pasta. While s

What She Wore Wednesday

It's Wednesday again- already! It's a rainy kind of day. Diva was in a pretty good mood this morning. That always helps. As usual she dressed herself. Nothing wild, she picked out a dress. She is a ham though when it comes to having her picture taken. Dress: Thrift Store find (she wanted the ties tied in the front instead of the back) Not pictured is her footwear. She chose white dress shoes from Target.

Hurt So Good

Ever done something that hurts, is hard, and you want to quit, but when you are done it feels so good??? That's how this week has gone for me. This week on my fitness tour brought me to Revved Fitness.   And it hurt so good. Revved is almost identical to Orangetheory. They do a combination of cardio and strength. You wear a heart rate monitor and the goal is to to elevate your heart rate and work in certain zones. The only difference I noticed is that Revved uses stationary bikes for cardio and Orangetheory uses treadmills. Revved offers a 7 day trial for $10. I signed up online and went to my first class Monday morning. Monday morning came and was stormy, early, and a line was almost out the door when I arrived. Yikes! I signed in and wandered into the room. It was a BIG class. All the bikes were full, and there were people on rowers and the strength area. The trainer split us in half. Half the class started with strength the other half started with cardio. I got in the stre
